Facility:

CPV Valley Energy Center
Us Rte 6 @ St Rte 17M

Application ID:

3-3356-00136/00004

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility
Article 19 Title IV (Phase II Acid Rain)
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Wawayanda, Orange County


Project Description:

The CPV Valley Energy Center (CPV) will consist of a combined cycle natural gas powered electric generating facility nominally rate at 630 megawatts (MW) and interconnection substation.

The CPV facility will generate nominally 630 MW of electricity, fueled primarily by natural gas. The CPV facility will use ultra-low sulfur distillate oil for back-up for reliability purposes. The CPV facility will use "combined cycle" generation technology, one of the most efficient technologies for producing electricity. The facility will be comprised of two combined-cycle units, each consisting of a combustion turbine generator (CTG), a Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) with supplemental duct firing, and a steam turbine generator (STG). Auxiliary equipment will include a low nitrogen oxide (NOx) natural gas-fired auxiliary boiler, needed to keep the HRSGs warm during periods of turbine shutdown and to provide sealing steam during startups.

The project will be equipped with state-of-the-art emissions control technology, including dry low NOx (DLN) burners and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology to control emissions of NOx, and an oxidation catalyst to control carbon monoxide (CO) and volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions. A continuous emissions monitoring system (CEMS) will be utilized to ensure and document facility compliance with applicable emissions standards. The CPV facility will also be limited to operating on the back-up fuel for the equivalent of 720 hours per year, per turbine. Water use will be minimized by the use of air cooled condensers (ACC). Process water supply will be treated wastewater provided from the City of Middletown Sewage Treatment Plant (STP). Wastewater generated by the CPV facility will be returned to the City of Middletown STP. The facility will employ best management practices (BMPs) for stormwater management, which will include a system that reflects existing drainage patterns.

There will be several storage tanks on-site, including a 965,000-gallon fuel oil storage tank, a 15,000-gallon aqueous ammonia storage tank and a 400,000-gallon demineralized water tank. A secondary safety containment area, designed to hold 110 percent of the entire volume of the tanks, will be provided around the fuel oil storage and ammonia storage tanks, consistent with New York State requirements.

There will be two utility interconnections at the facility. The electricity generated from the facility will be transmitted via an underground interconnect to the existing NYPA 345-kV transmission system less than 1-mile northeast of the Project site. The new switchyard will be constructed on property adjacent to the NYPA transmission line. Natural gas for the facility will be from the Millenium pipeline south of the site. The approval of this natural gas lateral will be subject to approval by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

The project will require temporary and permanent disturbance of DEC regulated wetlands (#MD-23) and federal jurisdictional wetlands. The project will require the temporary disturbance of 3.56 acres of DEC wetland for installation of an underground electrical line. For permanent disturbance, a total of 0.79 acres of wetlands will be impacted, including 0.33 acres of federal wetlands at various site locations, and 0.46 acres of forested DEC wetland which will be permanently converted to non-forested wetland along the underground electrical line right-of-way. The permanent loss of the wetland areas will be mitigated by the onsite creation of wetlands on a 1.5:1 ratio.

The project is located in the northeast portion of the Town of Wawayanda that is bounded Interstate 84 to the south, SR 17M on the east and SR 6 on the north and west. The site is undeveloped land used previously for agricultural purposes and zoned mixed commercial by the Town of Wawayanda.

Air Permits: The Applicant has filed individual applications seeking the issuance of a preconstruction permit pursuant to 6 N.Y. Compilation of Codes, Rules and Regulations (NYCRR) §201-6.1(b) and Subpart 201-5. New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) Staff concludes that the applications for this permit are complete within the meaning of 6 NYCRR §621.2(f) and has tentatively determined to issue the permits. Consequently, NYS DEC Staff has prepared a draft permit pursuant to 6 NYCRR §621.7(b)(7).

NYS DEC Staff has determined that the conditions in the draft preconstruction permit authorize the construction and operation of the proposed facility and assure conformance of the facility with all applicable State and federal air pollution control regulations including the requirements of 6 NYCRR Parts 201, 225, 227, 231, 242, 243, 244, 245 and 257, as well as all New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) at 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 60. Information regarding the demonstration of the Lowest Achievable Emission Rate (LAER) or Best Available Control Technology (BACT) or both is included within the Draft EIS and draft air permit.

Freshwater Wetlands Permit: The Applicant has filed an application with NYS DEC for a Freshwater Wetlands permit for the disturbance of a freshwater wetlands and/or its 100-foot adjacent area protected pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 663 (Freshwater Wetlands). Further, for the crossing of two streams within the DEC wetland, the project will also require a permit for Disturbance of The Bed or Banks of a Protected Stream or Other Watercourse pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 608 (Protection of Waters). The Department will issue a joint permit that covers all of the above jurisdictions.

Water Quality Certification: Pursuant to Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) §24-0105 and the Clean Water Act Part 401 Water Quality Certification, the Applicant has filed an application with NYS DEC for a State water quality certification for activities on the site under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. NYS DEC Staff concludes that the applications for these permits are complete within the meaning of 6 NYCRR §621.2(f) and has tentatively determined to issue a permit. Consequently, NYS DEC Staff has prepared a draft permit.

NYS DEC Staff has determined that the conditions in the draft permit authorize the proposed activities and assure conformance with NYS water quality standards.
